Remember Us: The Hungarian Hidden Children – Presented by Evi Blaikie

Hidden children — that’s the title given to countless children who survived the Holocaust by being placed out of harm’s way, by finding sanctuary in the arms of strangers, through the assistance of friends and acquaintances or even soldiers.

Many of the survival stories seem miraculous. But survival at that time, under the circumstances, could indeed be seen as such. Many still wonder about their own survival. Visiting the past to regain the future, this powerful and hopeful film focuses not only on who these children were, but the adults they have become.

Following the documentary, Evi Blaikie will take questions.

Technological Optimism: With John Lobell

Come to our Lewis Davis Pavilion for another thought-provoking talk by John Lobell – this time: “Technological Optimism”.

This richly illustrated lecture explores the following:

“Ever since the explosive best-seller of the 1960s, ‘The Population Bomb’, we have been warned of impending doom. Mass starvation, resource depletion, environmental degradation. Some of these are real problems yet we continue to see technological marvels and increasing prosperity. So what is the real story? Come to this presentation, and be prepared to discuss. (Disagreements welcome.)”
